My name is Darby. You might be wondering why I look so happy. I’m happy because I’m sitting on a beach by the Ganges River and no longer have dysentery.

I love to travel, despite certain discomforts and limits of my bank account. I combine travel with the money saving capacities of occasionally forfeiting certain conveniences such as airplanes and hotels.

I left the US for the first time when I was 14, and never wanted to come back. I’ve spent time in Spain, Central America, and India, and recently tried to bicycle through South America, but there are a billion places still on my list. I find travel very educational, so I fit my college education around traveling, not vice versa. You know… priorities.

I’m not perfect, but I try to travel in a way that sustains both my wallet and the environment.  As slowly trudge around the world, I’ll show you how my green adventure saves me money while allowing my indulgence in the landscapes and cultures of everywhere.

From my home in Los Angeles, to all the places I’ll go and have gone, moving within my means results in antics, misadventures, and maybe some revelations but probably not.
